I am a Licensed Master in Social Work (LMSW) and earned my Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Columbia University. My passions for therapy originated during my undergraduate experience at Florida State University where I provided sex education and programming regarding sexual pleasure and stigma. This included discussing society’s impact on sex, pleasure, slut shaming, rape culture, and the intersectionality of these impacts with various identities.
I have worked with college aged students regarding trauma, anxiety and depression, healthy relationships, sexual pleasure and communication, family dynamics, crisis intervention and life transitions. Mindfulness is incorporated into all modalities that I use within therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused and Strengths Based Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I prioritize the collaboration of therapist and client, as you are the expert of your own life. Clients have benefitted from working on their negative self talk in therapy with me, as well as kindness to oneself and decreasing self-criticism. Mindfulness is key in accomplishing these goals. I believe each person has the ability and strength to create positive and meaningful, lifelong change in their lives.
